Board of Deputies President Marie van der Zyl has reacted to the news that the Equalities and Human Rights Commission is considering launching a formal investigation into antisemitism in the Labour Party.

Marie said: “This proposed independent investigation confirms what the Jewish community has known for a long time: that the Labour leadership has a problem with anti-Jewish racism which it is unable or unwilling to solve. We welcome this development and hope it will now focus minds on the extent and depth of antisemitism infecting the Labour movement.”
